Can you give me any scoop on Palmer’s baby adoption on NCIS? He seemed to be having a hard time in the last episode. Is it going to fall apart? — Gracie
That’s an arc that will continue to play out throughout the season, says Glasberg. “We’ll step away from it from time to time and it’ll resurface, but people should be prepared for a bit of an emotional roller coaster when it comes to that,” he says.

Mark Harmon and Michael Weatherly Preview an NCIS Flashback

On a nearly 100-degree day in Los Angeles, drought-stricken Griffith Park stands in for Baltimore in the fall. The NCIS cast members on hand are sweating it, since they’re all wearing their agency jackets. Michael Weatherly (aka Tony DiNozzo) has it the worst, since he has to sprint up and down hills after a suspect.

In the next setup, he’s standing over a corpse, trying not to drip sweat on the poor actor who’s playing dead. “Can a dead body get a sunburn?” he ad-libs. The line stays in. After the cameras stop, Weatherly compliments his other scene partner on his deadpan reaction. “I love it when I say that and look up at you,” he tells Mark Harmon (Leroy Jethro Gibbs). “Nobody does that slow burn like you.”

Gibbs will be absent from some of this episode, “Once a Crook” (airing Oct. 22), because much of it consists of a flashback to DiNozzo’s days as a Baltimore street cop. (Their characters first collided in a previous time-warp episode, “Baltimore”; the 1998 flashbacks in this installment predate that.) Yet the story should shed light on the relationship these two have now and further solve the mystery of why a stoic man like Gibbs picked a cutup like DiNozzo to be his No. 1 son on the NCIS team.

A few weeks later, we caught up with Harmon, Weatherly and executive producer Gary Glasberg in the much less humid writers’ room.

TV Guide Magazine: Fans are never more excited than when they hear NCIS is doing a flashback. Will this episode provide psychological insight into Tony?
Weatherly: For me, the most interesting part of this episode was how I didn’t realize until we were shooting the flashback scenes that Tony used to be quite earnest, focused and almost without any defense mechanisms. I’m like, “Oh, this is before. He was a movie buff, but it hadn’t become [a major] part of his personality yet.”
Glasberg: You get to see some formative moments for Tony that got him to the point where he is now. Clearly something started to shift with his interests in law enforcement, taking it from the cop stage to the detective stage to ultimately what drew him to NCIS. Maybe there’s still a piece missing that we’ll get to later on.
Weatherly: There’s a reason Gibbs picked Tony to be in his world. We saw part of that in the “Baltimore” episode, but what this episode shows is more how these guys have a shared understanding of the job. There’s a photo behind Gibbs’s desk, which is actually of a character Mark played a long time ago in [the short-lived series] 240-Robert. As we were getting ready to do this episode, I was looking at this picture of Mark. I stole his haircut from 240-Robert. [To Harmon] I hope you don’t mind! I didn’t look quite as good as you looked back then in the tight shirt.
Harmon: By the time we started doing flashbacks, which was a number of years in, we’d earned it. Certainly as an actor you have more to grip on to. It’s interesting to hear Michael talk about how, when he played this guy in this episode, he learned he was earnest, traditional and calm in the heat of action — a lot like the guy who plays him. But those are choices he can make 11 years in that he couldn’t have made in Year 1. There’s still a ton of mystery to the characters, and still a lot of growth, too.

TV Guide Magazine: When we interviewed Cote de Pablo about leaving the show, she said that, speaking as a fan herself, if her sudden departure created opportunities to do shocking things or create new casting opportunities, that was great.
Harmon: Aw, gee, that’s nice of her! [Laughs]
Glasberg: This is a staff and cast that respond to being thrown something they weren’t expecting. I couldn’t be more enthusiastic, honestly, with where we’re headed this season. I’m really excited about Emily Wickersham [who will play Bishop, an NSA intelligence analyst, starting in November]. I almost used the word reenergized. It’s not that we weren’t energized before, but it’s good when somebody lights a fire that you weren’t expecting.
Weatherly: It’s been an incredible experience to feel everybody lock into a newish rhythm that feels surprisingly comfortable and classic NCIS. I’m elated by the energy that comes out of this place, and every guest star who comes through is like solid gold.

TV Guide Magazine: Every possible twosome on the show carries a certain intrigue, but maybe none more so than the mentor-mentee dynamic between Gibbs and DiNozzo. Do you agree?
Weatherly: It’s why I come to work. The great gift of “Baltimore” was that I got to tackle Mark — given his real-life history [as a star UCLA quarterback]. Then I turned him over to cuff him and he punched me in the face! And yet it wasn’t antagonistic. Those characters are both only children, I believe, and there’s a loneliness to Gibbs. He’s a sniper. He’s somebody who’s in his own world. And that’s something with Tony, too. They line up a little bit, even though they’re wildly, photonegatively different — you would think.
Glasberg: The more years that go by, the stronger the understanding between these two fantastic actors. There are little things I pick up on in the editing room — I’ll see a response that works with just a look, where maybe earlier it may have required a line. That nuance is fun for me.
Weatherly: I remember the first time I ever said “Thank you” after a head slap. Which was an instinctive, unscripted moment of silliness that got a laugh in rehearsal, so it stayed in. And then, as I thought about it, I was like, “You know what? That’s really true!” DiNozzo is like, “Thank you for reminding me to get my head back in the game.” He needs Gibbs that way.

Even though Mike Franks (Muse Watson) is long dead and buried, his presence is still felt by Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and McGee (Sean Murray) when the two travel to Afghanistan in this week’s episode of “NCIS.”

They’re following leads in a murder case that takes them to an Afghan women’s shelter that Franks secretly supported for years.

“This is a story about a time a couple of years ago,” executive producer/showrunner Gary Glasberg told XfinityTV. “It was before Franks passed away, at an event that took place and a situation between the two men.”

Also in the episode, airing Tuesday night (Oct. 15) at 8/7c on CBS, Jackie Geary plays NCIS Agent Susan Grady, a polygraph expert, who will be a temporary addition to the team, filling in just as Vera Strickland (Roma Maffia) did last week following the exit of agent Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) a week earlier.

Glasberg talked to us about the episode — titled “Anonymous Was a Woman” — and what the future holds for TV’s highest-rated drama series this season. Here’s what he had to say:

XfinityTV: You mentioned in our last interview that Mike Franks would be returning. So in this episode, will we see him more in flashbacks than in Gibbs’ imagination like his last appearance?

Glasberg: That is a good way to describe it. Steve Binder wrote a really fantastic episode that I am really proud of. It is a story from Franks’ past that effects Gibbs. We do some flashbacks, and we look into a world and an issue that is significant, concerning, and emotional. I just finished watching the episode last night and I’m proud of it.
Previously: ‘NCIS’ Boss Explains Ziva’s Farewell, Reveals What’s Next

McGee goes to Afghanistan in this one. Is his role going to be changing now that Ziva is gone and he will be out in the field more?

I think we just enjoy sending Sean out into the Middle East. No one wears a helmet quite like Sean Murray. This was a storyline where we felt it was appropriate for McGee to go with Gibbs. I don’t necessarily think we are making it a habit, but it was right for this story and I will let you be the judge.

Is the reason Tony (Michael Weatherly) doesn’t go, fallout from the loss of Ziva? How is Tony doing?

We are trying to deal with Tony handling Ziva’s absence in as real and organic a way as we can. This was a big deal. This was a woman he felt very strongly about, and this relationship was very, very significant. He is going to feel that for quite some time. It is going to resonate, and it doesn’t just resonate with Tony. It resonates through our entire team. Even though Gibbs may not express himself as verbally, it resonates with him, too. It’s just a glance from Tony’s desk to Ziva’s desk. It’s little things that will carry through in episodes to come.

We’ve seen Roma Maffia fill in, and in this episode Jackie Geary. Also, Agent Borin (Diane Neal), a Coast Guard agent, will come back and work with the team. Who else is going to be filling in at Ziva’s desk?

It’s not really filling in at the desk. Every story has a reason why we incorporate some visiting characters. For example, Delilah (Margo Harsman) steps in. We need her assistance for a Department of Defense storyline. She connects and participates in a case, as well.

It is fun to have this array of characters that are helping out. Ultimately, we are building to this place in November where a story comes up that involves the NSA and an NSA analyst. That is when we meet Ellie Bishop, played by Emily Wickersham, and I’m very, very excited about her.

Could she actually be Ziva’s replacement at some point?

You’re never going to hear me say that because at the end of the day, I’m not looking to replace Ziva. I’m looking to add something new and different to the mix. The Bishop character will be very different and bring something we haven’t had before.

Is Emily Wickersham going to do more than one episode?

Certainly. Right now, we are looking to have her for three episodes and we will see what happens after that. I have been nothing but thrilled with the stories we are doing, the preparation we are doing, and my time with Emily has been fantastic.

The “Anonymous Was a Woman” episode of “NCIS” airs Tuesday (Oct. 15) at 8/7c on CBS.

Ziva has left the building. (Or, if you want to get technical, she never returned to the building.)

But even though we’ve seen the last of Cote de Pablo for the foreseeable future, there’s plenty of action to come on NCIS, according to executive producer Gary Glasberg. Part of it, he says, will be seen in tonight’s episode, which he’ll give you scoop on in our interview below, among many other things…

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Obviously this was such a huge moment for the series and for the team — can you talk about what’s going to come next after all of this?
GARY GLASBERG: This is a huge deal for us and to suddenly not have Ziva present is something that we’re absolutely going to feel moving forward and if we didn’t feel it we’d be cheating ourselves and the audience. That absence in the squad room, that empty desk is something that we’re going to acknowledge. We’re going to acknowledge it in the episode that airs [tonight] and in the episode that follows that. We’re really trying to approach this as realistically and organically as possible, and it’s going to take time for our characters to move on and they all have opinions and thoughts about that and it’s been worked into the storylines and hopefully people will go through the process with them.

I have to ask about Tony’s ‘I will’ list — is that going to come up eventually again?
Well, you know we like to plant little seeds and leave cookies for people and it certainly is something that could pop up again. It won’t in the immediate future, but I’d love to go back and take something that was planted and revisit it twelve or fifteen episodes later.

Or, like, four seasons….
Exactly and that’s the thing that NCIS can do that nobody else can.

I read something on Twitter about some possible deleted scenes. Were there any moments between Tony and Ziva that didn’t make it into the episode?
There really wasn’t much. There was some dialogue lines and little things here and there, but there really wasn’t. I wish I could say I’ve got some sort of vault of footage that ended up on the cutting room floor, but really you’re seeing most of what was shot.

Talk about some of the specifics of some of the episodes coming up.
We’ve got some really good stuff. The intention, especially in this third episode, is to really reset and give people an NCIS that is the reason they tune in and have some fun and some lightness and have a really good prime story and an investigation. The episode is called “Under the Radar,” and it really feels like a strong, old-time NCIS episode. Granted there’s an acknowledgement that that desk is empty, but we’re really back to normal to a certain extent. In the episode that follows that, we’ve got a Muse Watson/Mike Frank episode that revisits something from his past — very, very happy with that episode. It’s very emotional. Lolita Davidovich is in that episode and does a terrific job. After that, we revisit [season 8, episode 22] “Baltimore.” It’s sort of “Baltimore, Part 2.” It takes us back to before Tony was a detective, to when he was a beat cop. A crime comes up present day that links back to something from his past. His performance was fantastic. We’ve got some really good stuff coming up — really solid shows and guest stars. Agent Borin (Diane Neal), our coast guard character comes back for a storyline. Familiar faces and good stories and then that’ll lead us up to the introduction of Ellie Bishop.

What really made you want to write this character specifically as sort of a successor and as a new part of this team?
Well I don’t necessarily view her as a successor. The way we approached it was, how do we bring someone new into the fold? What could she bring to the group and to the party? Bishop is a NSA analyst, and she’s a thinker. She looks at the world in a very global way; she looks at everything, life, in a global way. That’s a big part of the way that our group is evolving. Our agents are evolving — they’re looking at terrorism in a different way, they’re having to approach crimes in a different way and I think that having that view of the world is something that our people don’t necessarily have much experience in. So I think she’ll provide something different. I think she’ll emotionally provide something different. Emily Wickersham is a terrific actress. I’ve now spent a bunch of time with her; I’m really excited about what she’s going to bring to this and how she’s going to bring the character to life. We’ll have some fun with it.

Like you mentioned, NCIS is a show where we fall in love with characters over time. Is it going to take some time to get to know Emily as well? Ziva is a tough act to follow. Do you hope the audience is patient?
Oh yeah! I’m very realistic about what this is going to be and what this process is going to be. I think Emily is, too. We have to give people time; it’s really interesting! I feel like we’re trying to approach this as honestly and realistically and as organically as we can. You know, Ziva’s departure has finally happened. We then spend six episodes without anyone except for guests who have been coming and going. And then in November, they’ll get to meet Bishop and hopefully by then they’ll want to meet someone new and interesting who brings something to our team, but we’re just going to approach it step by step and write the best script we can write.

I did love Delilah’s introduction even though it was brief. Are we going to see her again?
You absolutely will see her again. You’ll see her again in an episode that’s coming up, and we have some plans for her a little later on as well. That’s a relationship that we’re having some fun with, and we’ve got some plans in store. I’m excited about it, actually.

Speaking of returns, I know that a lot of people felt that Ziva’s farewell episode left a little crack in the door. Maybe, twenty seasons from now when we’re closing off Tony’s story, do you you see a reunion? Any chance of Cote eventually coming back?
There’s nothing planned at the moment; there’s nothing in the foreseeable future. But you know me well enough by now — everything’s done for a reason and everything’s done intentionally and Ziva’s not dead. So, you know, we’ll see what the future brings.

What can you tell me about Ziva’s replacement on NCIS? — Julie
ADAM:
There will be a bit of a revolving-door situation at Ziva’s old desk for the next few weeks, and viewers won’t get a look at who will most likely be the permanent new team member until November. Fortunately, when Emily Wickersham’s NSA Analyst Ellie Bishop finally does report for duty, she will make a strong first impression during the NCIS team’s hunt for terrorist Benham Parsa. “He is a new face that we haven’t seen before and has a new approach to things,” executive producer Gary Glasberg says of the season-long villain. “Bishop will actually have a strong view and position on [Parsa]. She’ll be bringing something extra to the table.”

EXCLUSIVE: With NCIS continuing to reign as the most watched scripted show on television and getting ready to spawn a spinoff series, the man behind both, Gary Glasberg, has been signed in a new overall deal by NCIS producer CBS TV Studios. Under the two-year extension that runs through May 2016, Glasberg will continue as executive producer and showrunner of flagship NCIS and of its proposed planted spinoff, which will be introduced in a two-part NCIS episode slated to shoot in February and air in the spring. He is writing the New Orleans-set offshoot and is executive producing with NCIS star/executive producer Mark Harmon. Glasberg called the experience working with CBS’ Leslie Moonves and Nina Tassler and CBS Studios’ David Stapf “amazing”, adding “I look forward to continuing to work with my NCIS family and can’t wait to dive in to what lies ahead,” Glasberg, repped by CAA and Michael Gendler, joined NCIS in 2009 and took the reins as showrunner two years later. NCIS closed out the 2012/13 season, its 10th on the air, as the most watched program on TV for the first time, with an average of 21.60 million viewers, edging Sunday Night Football (21.00 million). So far this season, the veteran drama is the most watched scripted program on TV in Live+same day and also ranks among the top 10 U.S. series in a number of international markets, including Canada, France, Italy as well as Australia, where it is in the Top 3.

As CBS’ NCIS continues its 11th season (tonight at 8/7c), the tweaked opening credits may lack a certain “kick,” but the song remains the same, as Leroy Jethro Gibbs and his team of agents — minus Cote de Pablo‘s Ziva David — go about doing what they do best. Showrunner Gary Glasberg shared with TVLine a look at certain reactions to the squad room shake-up and previewed new stories to come. Plus: an exclusive peek at a bittersweet Abby/McGee moment.

TVLINE | As the show returns, will much time have lapsed since Tony said goodbye to Ziva?
It’s a few days after Tony’s return from Israel — a literal week, because we try to play things in real time.

TVLINE | So, her absence is hanging in the air?
Oh, it’s very present. It’s a big part of quite a few episodes. You’ll see glances and references to the empty desk, but at the same time we try to get back to the fun and the humor and the lightness and the banter of the squad room — all the things that people like about our show. But we’re not hiding from it, it’s acknowledged.

TVLINE | When last I spoke to Michael Weatherly, he was quite excited about where he sensed Tony was going after this. What can you say about his story moving forward? Has Tony changed?
Yes, I think Tony has changed a bit. He’s matured. He’s experienced a loss in his personal life, and I think it’s going to affect how he moves forward. It’s certainly affecting how we as writers are handling him. He’s still very much Tony — he still cracks a joke and lights up the room with a smile and has some fun, but there’s also a seriousness. There’s a step forward that has happened, and I don’t think we’re hiding from that.

TVLINE | Who would you say is second-most affected by Ziva’s absence?
That’s an interesting question…. I think Abby certainly feels it. Ducky comments on it. McGee certainly feels it….

TVLINE | Gibbs seemed to dread taking her phone call….
The interesting one for me is Gibbs, because I think he really does feel it, but in classic Gibbs fashion, he’s not going to show it. That’s the challenge of writing to it, and that’s the brilliance of Mark Harmon as an actor — how do you show that beneath the surface and not have someone come out and say what they’re feeling?

TVLINE | New opening credits, I assume?
Yes, a different main title sequence. That was an interesting process, as well — emotional and challenging. But yeah, a little different.

TVLINE | Is Benham Parsa the Season 11 big bad you told me about at summer TCA?
[That threat] is significant and it will pop back up again. It’s going to mean something. And I think it represents interesting stuff that’s happening in our world. As we move into what I call the “more traditional” episodes of the show, just be aware that he’s still out there. He will end up on the Most Wanted wall.

TVLINE | What else is coming up?
You’ve got this [week’s] “Under the Radar” episode, which is kind of a “reset” for us. That’s where Roma Maffia (Nip/Tuck) has this fun stint as a retiring agent who helps us out in the squad room. In the episode after that, Muse Watson comes back as Mike Franks, in a really emotional storyline for Gibbs. Those are all flashback scenes, and they’re really nicely done. Lolita Davidovich (Blaze) is also in that episode. After that, you’ve got Tony’s return to Baltimore, for some more insight into who he was — even before he became a detective.

TVLINE | What precipitates that?
There’s a crime that comes up that “connects the dots” a little bit and brings up some memories, and honestly revisits a whole bunch of things. Again, I’m really content with the slow build of getting back on our feet after [Ziva’s departure]. And then coming up in November, we’ll introduce everybody to [Ziva’s potential replacement] Ellie Bishop.

TVLINE | Some fans worry Bishop will be just a “female McGee.”
That was because there was a line that either I or someone threw out there, that described her in a specific way, as being… I forget what the phrase was. But she’s not [like McGee]. Emily Wickersham is a terrific actress and she’s going to bring a whole new spin and life to this character. That episode starts prepping next week, and I think she’s going to bring something fun to this group.

TVLINE | Lastly, were you relieved to see ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. not ding your numbers much at all? Was that on your mind?
It’s funny — every season, this stuff comes about and I’ve learned that all I can do is focus on the shows that I make. Especially this season, more than ever. Season 11 wasn’t supposed to have all the bumps and curves in the road that it has, and I’ve focused on making the best show that we can make. Whatever unfolds elsewhere, that just happens. There’s not much I can do about it.
